They were a bit rushed at the end however I always get a solid service when I come in.

by - Verified Customer January 03, 2017

All of the maintenance performed on the car was explained to me by Warren in excellent detail. Even as a young women, I felt respected and like a partner in the health of my car, not simply as a source of money for the shop.

by - Verified Customer January 04, 2017

I am so happy to found this place. This is not my first time being at this garage and every time when I go for some repairs, they did really great job. The price is very affordable. Highly recommend.

by - Verified Customer January 04, 2017

Thank you, Howard and Warren! Really appreciate the quick and honest work!

by - Verified Customer January 04, 2017

Great service. I always know that these guys care and are the best at articulating status and next steps. Four Stars ****

These guys were fantastic and extremely nice.

by - Verified Customer December 27, 2016

I used this shop for the first time based on online reviews. Very good scheduling and courteous, timely service. In retrospect a verbal review of the 60,000 mile check would have been appreciated.

Job was done on time and I felt good leaving the garage.

by - Verified Customer November 16, 2016

I had a great experience at My Mechanic - top quality work and excellent service. Howard and his team performed a thorough inspection of my car, and took the time to make sure I understood their recommendations. I really like the inspection report (with pictures) to help me keep track of future maintenance needs. Thanks, guys!

by - Verified Customer December 28, 2016

Excellent experience. I'll come back for sure.

by - Verified Customer December 18, 2016

Great Experience!

by - Verified Customer December 27, 2016

It was probably the easiest car maintenance transaction I've ever had. No waiting around for help, friendly staff, and nobody trying to sell me anything unrelated to my repairs. Also, the price they verbalized was the price I paid, which was very fair.

by - Verified Customer December 19, 2016

Great shop, great customer service! Very trustworthy. Can't beat that feeling.

This is the second time we came to the shop. The initial repair was free (tightening a gasket) and they brought two other repairs to our attention. The labor is expensive, but the job was well done.

by - Verified Customer December 11, 2016

I trust My Mechanics with my car. Howard is friendly and fair.

by - Verified Customer December 11, 2016

Very accommodating, honest, knowledge, informative, and competent. Provided results of the inspection that were very thorough.

by - Verified Customer November 22, 2016

I called thinking that I would need to have my tire replaced, but Howard and the folks were able to fix it which saved me a lot of money! It was so great to interact with a place that wanted to help and not take advantage of me. Howard was very communicative, and the work on my car was done quickly. Thanks, Howard!

by - Verified Customer November 15, 2016

You always get ripped off at mechanics but not here. Howard is awesome and I felt like I actually was told the truth for once. I'll be back. The reviews were true.

by - Verified Customer November 15, 2016

Howard and his team are awesome! Howard has been friendly and patient in every interaction, and he always takes the time to explain what repairs he recommends (cutting out unnecessary repairs that dealerships usually try to push on me). My car is always ready on time, and the cost for repairs is always far less than what dealerships quote. It's so nice to feel like I can trust a mechanic and know I'm getting the best deal possible.

by - Verified Customer November 14, 2016

Love Warren, Howard and everyone there. Thanks guys!

by - Verified Customer November 29, 2016

Good per usual.

Seemed to be spillage of unknown fluids during the oil change. A distinct smell was noticed when the car slowed down for over a week. Small does not exist currently, but it was rattling when it was present.

They were great to work with in every way.

by - Verified Customer November 27, 2016

Howard and his crew were fantastic. We took our car to My Mechanic SF after receiving an estimate from another garage. Howard re-diagnosed the problem and the fix ended up being much less than what we were previously quoted. They did a thorough diagnostic of the car and communicated clearly and promptly with us. Highly recommend My Mechanic SF

I had my brakes done at the shop. The Nissan dealer tried to over charge me and tell me both axle needed to be done. My Mechanic quoted me fair price and let me know my rear axle was fine. My front rotors got machined and the brakes feel good.

by - Verified Customer September 19, 2016

Easy to get quick appointment to get work done, completed as promised, and reasonably priced.

Very friendly and fast service! Liked the detailed report provided at the end. Would definitely return!

by - Verified Customer September 14, 2016

They listened to my concern and scheduled a time to receive and inspect my truck. After the inspection, they called and discussed the issue. We agreed upon a solution that was very reasonable in price, and they completed the work quickly and efficiently. They also provided an easy-to-read analysis of the health of the vehicle including some other potential service items. One point to mention is that they specifically did not complete a work request I had made because it would not have yielded satisfactory results without other work I was not prepared to do. This reduced the cost of the service, and allowed me to save money to complete the rest of the work I need to get done at a later date. I find this shop trustworthy and competent.

by - Verified Customer September 14, 2016

Drop off 2009 Audi Q5 for oil service and engine valve gaskets replacement. Later that same evening I noticed a pool of coolant in the garage and a trail of coolant as my wife pulled out of the garage. After further inspection, I found that the hose that attaches to the coolant reservoir has not put back correctly causing the major spillage/leak. Email the shop to let them know of the situation but never got a response back. We felt like our problem got ignored and wasn't a concern to them. We are not people that like to complain but wanted to raise the issue with them to maybe get a call for a visual inspection. But nothing. We will not be bringing our cars back here for service even though it is convention for us to.

by - Verified Customer September 13, 2016

Managers and Tech were very informative and made appropriate recommendations based on my vehicle and my needs. They gave insight into what they have seen in their experience with similar vehicles. They were efficient and fast.

I wouldn't dream of taking my vehicle anywhere else but here. Warren and Co. are hands down the best! I'm very proud to call them, "My Mechanic".

by - Verified Customer July 01, 2016

They seem honest! I was afraid my car would need extensive repair after the engine hesitated and the check engine light started flashing. They checked it out and originally said that the ignition coils were very worn and the spark plugs were a little worn, so they'd replace all of that, but then they checked the spark plugs once more and decided that replacing them wasn't necessary and that I could still get a lot of use out of them, saving me around $150. According to the OpenBay app they charged me a fair price for the repairs. The car has run like a dream since, and a few more of its quirks vanished (it's old).

Dropped off my car at My Mechanics on my way to work for an oil change and routine service, as well as to inspect squealing front brakes. They identified the cause and called to recommend new front brake pads and discs. Service was completed promptly, and I was able to pick up my car after getting off of work. They also unclogged one of my windshield wiper spray nozzles. Fantastic, friendly service as usual.

I have gone to My Mechanic for anything that has happened to my car for the past 3 years. They are the best that have ever worked on my car. They are great to work with, very accommodating, and fairly priced. I will always go to them with any problem with my car.

Great service. Clear on what needed to be repaired. Expensive, but that was expected. They went out of their way to offer me coupons for the tires which was awesome.

by - Verified Customer April 13, 2016

This shop bent over backward to not only take my car the same day I called but in working with the dealer to get some parts and programming instructions specific to my vehicle. They stayed in communication with my the entire time so I knew exactly what was happening with my car and did not charge me an arm and a leg. They fixed the problem amazingly and do excellent work.
